Training, Events & Seminars Enterprise Workload Modernisation

Join Crayon and Cloudhouse on Thursday 27th of June at Eight Club, Moorgate and learn how we can help your organisation with modernising your applications, in the most efficient way.

Why attend:

Many enterprises are being forced to consider taking out costly extended support as a short-term solution to the impending end of life for Windows Server 2008. This however does not address modernisation, you will still need to revisit the app in 3 years.

Register to learn how we can support with enterprise workload migrations, with specific examples of client environments consisting of Windows 2003 & 2008 workloads, which were a risk to the business and how we helped move their estate to Server 2016 and into the AWS cloud.

Overview of event:

How you can get better value and pricing than the extended support option

  • Move to new supported environments, whether cloud or on prem
  • Use the same process/product to move your server estate to latest technologies, thereby realising additional savings
  • Fully Evergreen – proactively manage the testing phase for all future MS security and feature releases using our Evergreen Container™ technology
  • Why organisations are using Amazon to host their Windows applications
  • Hear how Crayon can drive down your cloud costs, helping you achieve optimisation and budget for new workload migrations.
  • Learn about our Cloud Adoption program and how we have helped other organisations similar to yours, where proof of concept has kicked off weeks after application discovery phase.
  • Learn how to access technical resource, as well as POC funding from AWS.

Our Cloud Services experts will also cover some key benefits, which are significant for many of our financial services clients.

1. Future Proof

  • Migrate Windows XP & 7 apps to Windows 10 without code changes
  • Keep Windows ‘Evergreen’, and future-proof for Windows-as-a-Service

2. Reduce Risk and Cost

  • Eliminate Windows XP and 7 and keep your apps running
  • Reduce exposure to security vulnerabilities and lack of compliance
  • Cut Op-Ex costs by consolidating onto fewer platforms

3. App Compatibility

  • Package all apps once into an Evergreen Container™, and run anywhere on any Windows OS or cloud

It’s simple – Cloudhouse helps to rapidly modernise older Windows applications so that they can be deployed to the latest supported Windows platforms without any change to code.
